I park over concrete with composite ramps under the rear wheels to get the coach level.

I park mine on a gravel driveway. I purchased four 24" x 24" x 1/2" rubber tiles for landscaping from Menards. I park the coach on top of them during storage.

Well,
Here's where we park ours and, the surface it's parked on. It is concrete but, it's covered with two industrial epoxy color coats and, two industrial clear coats. It is parked for maybe a month to two at a time but, it's gone for the rest so, I'm not overly concerned about whatever possible effects, if any, the concrete can or will possibly have on the tires. That's if any of those effects can get through the epoxy coatings.

We have a compacted DG driveway and parking pad. Inexpensive and works great.

Ours is parked on concrete with 12mm poly underlayment. I don't separate the wheels and the concrete but it moves out about every 14 days or so. Click image for larger version

We parked ours on a specifically-poured concrete third driveway alongside the garage. When we upgraded form a 96" wide Class C to a 102" wide Class A, we had to prune 8" off the garage roof overhang to get it in. Parking it was a very careful procedure.

Over four years, with average annual utlisation around 1500 miles, I didn't see any of the dreaded "concrete attack" on the tires. The rig got used as supplementary living accommodation on the driveway when we had overseas visitors, but only got driven about half a mile each way to a dump station in a local city park during our last year of ownership.Last year was our 50th wedding anniversary, so we were too busy planning the party that we never used the RV, hence its sale.

In the summer, ours is parked on road gravel under an RV port. In the winter it is on 1.5 to 2" stones in the sun. Sometime it sits in either place for a couple of months. In 20 years of MH ownership, we have never had a tire problem of any kind. Our large crane trucks in our business would sometimes sit on sand or gravel for months at a time in the off season. I think we MH owners spend too much time worrying about things that do not matter. Unless the RV will be sitting in one place for 6-8 months or longer, what possible difference does it make what the tires sit on. You will probably replace them in 8-10 years anyway.

It is not the tires we are concerned with. It is the driveway. Thanks to everyone for their input. We will cutting out the blacktop and putting in concrete pads for the tires to sit on. Unfortunately, Tom still works, so the coach has to sit longer than we would like it to.

6" of reinforced concrete. It sits for several months. Should I have something under the tires to protect the tires?
